The Anchor Inn is a traditional country inn and restaurant nestled in the Stour Valley, in the picturesque village of Nayland. Perched on the banks of the River Stour, The Anchor enjoys stunning views across the river and the beautiful countryside that is fondly known as ‘Constable Country’ thanks to the work of painter, John Constable.
On the menu you’ll find traditional British cuisine, with a twist, cooked fresh to order. Ingredients are sourced locally where possible and our menus are changed seasonally to respect what is at its freshest and best.
Behind the bar is an impressive selection of quality local and regional cask ales, international beers, wines from around the globe and a range of soft drinks, including freshly brewed tea and coffee from Cafe du Monde and Newby of London Teas.
Whether you’re joining us for an evening drink with friends, meeting business associates for lunch or joining us for an intimate evening meal, The Anchor Inn will be a place where you can relax and enjoy good food and drink.
Open throughout the festive period The Anchor is the ideal venue for an office Christmas party, a traditional family Christmas or a New Years celebration to remember.
Celebrate with us on Christmas Day and enjoy a delicious 5-course Christmas lunch, perfect if you fancy putting your feet up this Christmas. On Christmas Eve and Boxing Day dine from our hearty a la carte menu and on New Years Eve we’ll be hosting a New Years Eve party with a disco until late.
We’re putting traditional hearty pub food back on the agenda with a new menu. Not only are our menus changing, the way we present them is also having a bit of a refresh and our new pub classics menu will be chosen from blackboards.
Our new dishes include a great selection of starters and mains, which we think create a great British pub menu that offers diners good value traditional pub food in an idyllic riverside setting.
